    Summary

    When Joe landed in NYC and turned up at the apartment he's supposed to be sharing with Booker for the next several months, he wasn't expecting to have the door shut on his face by a grumpy Italian instead.

    When Nicky walked out of an 8-year relationship and crashed at Booker's apartment to figure things out, he wasn't expecting to have his life turned upside down by his unwanted new housemate instead.

    And neither was expecting to find his second chance at love, family and belonging in the other.

    Summary

    Nicolò diGenova was a man training to be a priest, his life laid out before him, before he killed a man and ended up in Old Guard Prison, sentenced to 80 years, where the prisoners and guards are waiting to tear him apart. This is his punishment and he is not afraid to face it. This is where he expects to live out the rest of his life in penance. What he isn't expecting is Yusuf "Joe" Al-Kaysani, a fellow prisoner in for grand larceny, and the crashing of their two orbits. As Nicky fights to survive and Joe struggles not to feel anything for the former priest-turned convicted killer, they may find solace and purpose in each other. This is how they fall in love, fight to survive, and try to make a life in the worst of conditions.

    Summary

    Joe is a single father of two wonderful twins. Unfortunately, he has the worst luck when it comes to keeping babysitters long term. Nicky is looking for another job to help pay the rent when he stumbles across an oddly phrased “help wanted” advertisement and decides to call the number. What ensues is far more than what either man could have dreamed.

    A tale of two lost souls who find each other and, with the help of their meddling friends and two mischievous five year olds, find their happily ever after as well.

    “I wost Papa. I went to wook for Unca cosh we soopwise then I wost Papa!” 

    Nicky blinks, trying to parse through what was being said to him. “You lost Papa as you were looking for your Uncle? Is your Uncle meant to meet you here?” he asks, and the child nods, sniffling into his little fist. 

    “Yesh. Pease hep? Wook?” he asks, voice so small, and Nicky nods softly, gently extending his hand towards the child. 

    “Of course. May I hold your hand?” He’s trying to keep his voice as gentle as possible, and smiles when the child grabs his hand, little hand squeezing at two of his fingers. 

    “Wow. Yous has big hands wike Papa anna Unca,” he says, looking up at Nicky as he stands then, to grab his things and soon they’re walking. The little one is turning his head, looking all over, sniffling. Nicky feels awful for him.

    “What’s your Papa’s name?” 

    “Sebastien,” he replies, nodding. “Anna my Unca name Yufu.”

    ***

    or the one where nicky helps a lost child find his uncle and his papa.

    Summary

    Joe's beloved painting, made for him by Nicky was stolen from them centuries ago. A visit to the new museum exhibit 'Ugliest Art of The Renaissance era' may lead to it's return.

    This is a sequel but can easily be read and understood without reading part 1, which is another fluffy little fic about the same length.

    Summary

    When Yusuf was ten years old his baba died.

    His mother, devastated, had not been able to bear to stay in Tunis after his passing. But instead of moving back to her hometown of The Hague, she had moved them over 2000 miles away to the small town of Portree, on the Isle of Skye.

    Yusuf had hated it at first - but then he met a strange boy named Nicky while exploring his new home, a boy with eyes the colour of Skye’s rolling hills and turbulent seas, and a smile that made Yusuf feel like he could fly.

    Eighteen years later, he met Nicky again.

    Summary

    “We can’t miss a whole decade, Joe,” Nicky chuckled, his hands curling further around Joe’s neck.

    “Ask me how much I care,” Joe muttered, face still pressed under Nicky’s jaw. One of Joe’s hands snaked under his shirt and wrapped around the small of his back.

    Nicky snorted. “What about Nile?”

    “Nile is young, her first decade is going to blow by. She won’t even notice we were gone.”

    “And Andy? Andy would be mad.”

    “Andy can get over it, as far as I’m concerned,” replied Joe. “Do you know how long I had to third wheel for her?”

    Summary

    Nicky watched as the frost slowly crawled across the edges of the small window, the sight serving as a reminder that tonight was going to be cold, frigid even. This weather was not typical here, not this early in the season…or at least he didn’t recall it from the last time they’d been in Canada. He supposed the fault had to lie with them a little bit, their paranoia making them opt out of a cabin with central heating and go with a classic fireplace instead.

    Summary

    “Are you alright?” Nicky continues, and it’s abrupt, forced, and Lykon grips the phone tighter.

    “Yes, I am—Nicky—”

    “Well, I’m glad we got that clear. I’m happy you’re well. Please talk to Quynh,” Nicky says, and then he’s just hanging up, and yeah, Lykon screwed up.

    Nicky and Quynh have every right to be pissed at him.

    “Lykon?”

    He looks up and blinks when he finds Andy and Joe, already ready to leave, Lykon’s own jacket in Joe’s hand. Lykon shakes his head then and smiles, taking the jacket from Joe.

    Andy raises an eyebrow then, while Joe waves his hand, motioning aimlessly.

    “Are we sharing, Lykon? Who was that?” he asks, and Lykon sighs.

    ***

    or the mutual-pining story between the most important people in Lykon’s life, because he dealt with the pain of missing Andy and Joe by never talking about them with his best friends Quynh and Nicky, and vice-versa. not in the last 10 years.

    then Andy and Joe come back home and they all meet for the first time. so what do you do, when someone you love very much keeps you in the dark from others he holds dear? how are you meant to feel?

    on top of possibly, maybe, falling in love?

    Summary

    Excerpt:
    Today, Nile is feeling restless, she doesn’t feel like walking on the beach, or like watching TV. She tried to read one of the language books they bought, but she can’t concentrate. She sits on the front steps of the house, elbows on knees and sighs. She can see Andy swimming again, Joe has gone to the market, but she didn’t fancy joining either of them. Today the sun is too bright, the sea breeze is annoying.

    Summary

    Joe is a packrat. Every one of the safehouses where they’ve spent a significant amount of time is sure to have stashes of his ‘junk’, as the others call it: swathes of old cloth, yellowing paper clippings, dried paint tubes, broken jewelry and loose semi-precious stones... And everyone knows better than to get rid of any of it.

    It's one of the things he and Nicky squabble about every century or so.

    Summary

    — Don't worry, it happens a lot when people meet me for the first time.

    Yusuf looks up, slaps the stranger's hand away and tries to stand up for himself, but one of the man’s arms is already around his waist helping him find balance. He is glad, otherwise he would probably be on the ground again.

    — I fell because you slammed a door on my face, you pretentious little shit.

     

    (Nicolo di Genova is a famous singer that everyone is absolutely obsessed with, including Yusuf's sister. Yusuf can't hear about him anymore until one day destiny decides to interfere).
